Police: Man Used Booze To Lure Girls To Tent

A Barre man is facing criminal charges  after he allegedly lured two girls to a remote tent and gave them  alcohol.  

Police arrested 46-year-old William Ahearn after a  parent of one of the children alerted authorities of suspicious text  messages.  

Ahearn is facing charges that include indecent assault and  battery on a person under the age of 14 and enticing a child.  He's  being held on 50-thousand-dollars bail.

Officials say Ahearn was located hiding in a vacant house in town and was captured without incident.
